Student residences entry

A Bristol-based property developer, Urban Creation, has used the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access product at two of its new student residences. The Manor House, pictured, and Charlotte’s Rise, historic buildings in the centre of the city converted by Urban Creation, are now offering secure access through ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access and VingCard Signature RFID door locks. The tenants can gain entry to their rooms and suites with a swipe of their mobile device.

Check-in is immediate upon the start of each student’s lease through the mobile access app, and the app automatically checks them out at an agreed-upon time at the end of the lease.

Jonathan Brecknell, director and owner of Urban Creation, said: “We are always looking for clever new ways to improve the experience of tenants in our properties and we think this will help to make their stay a smooth one. The move chimes with our ethos of creating homes that are both stylish and practical to live in, paying careful attention to all the little details that make a home a home – from clever storage space to logical layouts.”

ASSA ABLOY adds that their Hospitality Mobile Access product also removes the risk of student residents losing physical room keys, which is a security risk and adds to costs for replacing keys and door locks. If the student’s phone is lost or stolen, the key can be removed from the mobile app remotely. The VingCard Signature RFID door locks offer anti-cloning features, the makers add. Visit
